Thanks for pointing this out!
It would be possible to change the documentation of types module now and start telling users that the Python development team made up their mind. That would open up the possibility to really deprecate the module or change the type names later (but only much much later!), without causing the effect I called "version fatigue" lately here.
I don't understand exactly what you are suggesting here. Would you care to explain it more clearly?
